    The government owns 60% of the stock. They appointed the CEO so yes its government controlled.

    I think it's a story -- I agree with you. It shows such poor common sense that one has to wonder what they were thinking. Regardless of intent, perception is reality. It was a stupid thing to do.
    Agreed. For either party.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    They are just lobbying the government with their financial "gifts" like all big corporations do.

    The fact that the state has a majority share in their company doesn't have much to do with it.
